Emotionally Intelligent Leadership Development

The Emotionally Intelligent Leader

The Harvard Business Review has hailed emotional intelligence as “a ground-breaking, paradigm-shattering idea, one of  the most influential business ideas of the decade.” 

Emotional intelligence or EI is the ability to recognise, understand and handle your own emotions, and those of the people around you. A development of Self Awareness and Other Awareness makes E.I. the critical personal development tool for those wanting to excel at Leadership and those wanting to create or participate in High Performing Teams. People with a high degree of emotional intelligence know what they are feeling, what their emotions mean, and how these emotions can affect other people. 

Leadership research tells us that the lack of interpersonal skills and the inability to adapt are the two principal derailment factors in leadership careers.

With leaders in organisations spending up to 80% of their time talking and understanding others, changing the nature of how people communicate and work with each other can be the single most powerful way a leader can bring about performance breakthroughs.

Using Business Emotional Intelligence assessments combined with MTC Experiential and Accelerated Learning Techniques in our Leadership Programme enable organisations, of all sizes, to address leadership challenges such as:

  • Our senior management are not demonstrating the calibre we need to lead our future business...”
  • Post-merger the leadership team is struggling to work together…”
  • We need to build the skills of our operational leadership to embrace our changing workplace…”
  • New leaders have to be effective from day one in their role as a senior executive in this business…”
  • Founders of the business need to develop their leadership to match the people and sales growth…”

Emotional Intelligent assessments combined with Daniel Goleman’s leadership model provide a rich picture of the skills, capabilities and financial potential of an organisation’s talent.

Business Emotional Intelligence assessments for leaders provide:

  • Benchmarks against 5000 international leaders
  • Feedback on 8 critical emotional drivers and behaviours that predict success
  • A map to a leader’s most authentic leadership style (Visionary, Coaching, Democratic Commanding…)
  • Insights into blind spots that stop leadership potential
  • A blueprint to shift leaders’ ability to deliver results that achieve different outcomes.
  • A common language for developing and expanding the whole leadership culture to enhance global performance.
